The Office of Sustainability serves to advance Colby’s leadership in campus sustainability and environmental education through collaboration with faculty, staff, students, administrators, and campus committees. Through our initiatives, we strive to foster a culture of sustainability and resource conservation among the campus community.
The Office of Sustainability supports ownership of sustainability initiatives throughout Facilities Services and identifies opportunities to align our operations with sustainable best practices. We collaborate with Capital Projects and Operations & Maintenance teams to set sustainability goals and ensure they are achieved. We also work with Business and Administrative Services to support the efficient use of resources through recycling, composting, and energy management initiatives.
